As a child growing up I remember when the kinfolks and neighbors had to entertain themselves just as we kids did. In the winter months they got together to play dominoes, Forty Two and Rook cards. There was lots of loud talking and laughing. The adult men always liked to see who could tell the biggest and scariest tale. We kids got to watch and listen for awhile, but usually the games went late on Saturday night and we were made to go to bed.
Mama always made coffee for them to drink and sometimes she even made a cake. After they finished about midnight they would decide whose house they would meet at the next Saturday night.
Nowadays the telephone, TV, computers and other electronics have taken the place of good old country fellowship that the people had in the old days.
During the winter months, when my husband was living, we sat around the table and played dominoes instead of watching the TV. The table still has slick spots where we wore off the finish shuffling the dominoes. When I look back at all those memories I need to write another book, so that my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren can understand what we mean by the “good old days.”
